Pallavi - The Song
by Dr. Neria H. Hebbar Bookmark and Share
 

Pallavi is the coming together of ragam and thanam. The tune created by the human mind blends with the surrounding nature, and in its cohesiveness springs forth the song. The combination is purely celestial. 

The moods of this Caribbean Island come alive in these photographs taken by Marco Tan, a student at St. George’s University in Grenada, over a period of two years, while living in Granada.

  
The gods smile on every occasion
When nature wins the persuasion


An artistry of nature so effortless
When the clouds and the sky caress


The colors of sunset or sunrise
Are bound to awe and surprise
 

Sun peeks from the shadows of cloud
In an attempt to shine bright and proud


As the sun dips beyond the horizon
The human wit begins to wizen


The heavens with color amber and blue
Nature that is pristine and true


If there is Heaven on earth
This is where it took its birth


In the painted sky and the cloud
From an artist with brushstrokes loud


Are we not really seeing
A gathering of heavenly being?


In the sky they rise as if to dance
Putting the humans into a trance 


Dispersing the clouds, the rising sun
Leaves no doubt as to who has won


Even a scene so fine
Lasts only for a short time


A nebula where the star is born?
Or our own sun that is time worn?
 

At night fishing boats are quietly resting
In the high tide the waves are cresting


Like rockets they seem to shoot
Into the skies far and remote 


The fireball in the horizon yonder
Is about to sink and wander


Where the ocean and the sky meet
The sun is in its nightly retreat


A row of clouds seem to stand up and cheer
In response to a cosmic concert, and revere 


In great anticipation of cooling rain
The dancing trees seem to wait in vain


Through blue, black, grey and white
Rays of sun trying to shine bright


All the glory of light will finally fall
When it is time for the curtain call


The bow of the cosmic hunter
Has earth in its center
